A friend at a museum let me borrow this piece of petrified wood ( 28 cm in length ).
He and I believe that the cylindrical tunnel which has filled in with a different type of rock indicates that this tree had a larva in it, possibly Cerambycidae.
It is from the Yegua Formation in Texas, from the Eocene period, according to my friend.

A good starting point might be identifying the tree species.
